  • 10 min small-boat ride over to the small island. A not finished ruined nice resort on site, island for sale for 50 Mio USD, would think about it if I would have the money. Spot to see for sure.  more »
  • Clean and cleared sea water with blue sky. Easy to visit from Koh Mak. Local people are friendly. Recommended!  more »
  • Stunning island. White sand ans clear water, with black stones all over the beach are just what you need to idle away a day. Far from any crowd, and not acceasible by walk or car. Entrance is 200 bhat per person and you can get for it a water or soft drink. Toilet is avaiable.
  • Koh Kham is still a hidden gem. It is absolutely stunning. Bright white sand with Crystal blue waters. Far from the crowd. With an abondonned luxury hotel invaded by vegetation. You cannot sleep on the island. There are no restaurant. You take a boat for a few hours and all day. And do not miss the chance to go there at low tide: as the sea is going down, a big white sandbank emerges, it is totally amazing ! 300 THB by boat from Koh Mak. Or you can rent a canoe, even nicer. You have to go there if you are around :)
